Is CA try­ing to fix some­thing that’s not bro­ken?

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES SPORT -

CA needs to work out what’s im­por­tant to them. I can un­der­stand why they’re (CA) do­ing this (read: Try­ing to improve im­age in pub­lic). But it should hap­pen be­cause they (play­ers) want to (do it), not be­cause they have to. Steve Smith made a huge er­ror in judge­ment, but Steve Smith is not a bad per­son. But it is the pun­ish­ment that has am­pli­fied the prob­lem.

In to­day’s so­cial me­dia scene, opin­ions are dime a dozen and get in­flated pretty eas­ily. So, au­thor­i­ties seem to be un­der some kind of pres­sure to be seen as do­ing the right thing …

I think too many peo­ple worry about what peo­ple say. It’s about be­ing true to your­self and stand­ing for what you be­lieve in — to do the right thing. For in­stance, the Aus­tralian cricket team — they want to play tough, ag­gres­sive, un­com­pro­mis­ing cricket but it has to be fair. As sim­ple as that. There are too many peo­ple in the world, not just crick­eters, that get on their phone and cre­ate some­thing that isn’t real. They try and por­tray a life that isn’t real.
